Location: London (UK/England),
Shape: Circle
Duration:under 4 min
3 Orange meteors followed by 7 grey meteors over London heading west.

This is likely natural causes given the recent meteor shower but I hope someone else reported this event.

After seeing nothing over London or in NZ, not even on the evening of the meteor storm last week, at approximately 2330 19th august, I saw 2 shooting stars heading south/south east over London… then Seconds after the second star, 3 orange 'meteors' flew west, towards Walthamstow, taking slightly different paths but at 90˚ to the path of the stars. Soon after, 4 dark circular meteors, bigger than the previous, followed one after the other in a straight line along the same path and continued until I couldn't see them directly then disappeared in the city glow.

Very odd.
